‘I found the whole workshop very useful and interesting. The video material was very thought-provoking and I enjoyed having time to discuss with others their ideas for events in the future. Thank you for such a good workshop I left feeling very positive about running our January event.’ Attendee at a Reading workshop

Every year we hold free workshops across the UK for people interested in organising an activity to mark Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) on 27 January. Workshops take place in the autumn and are aimed at both existing and new activity organisers, from schools, local authorities, voluntary and community groups, trade unions, prisons and many other types of organisations. 

We also run HMDT Youth Champion Workshops aimed at young people aged 14 -24 who would like to get involved with HMD. Details about HMDT Youth Champion Workshops will be available soon.

Each year Holocaust Memorial Day Trust holds free Youth Champion workshops for anyone aged 14-24 who is interested in organising an activity to mark Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD). Anyone is welcome, whether you have held an activity before or don't know where to start! 

Attending a workshop will help you to:

• Gain a better understanding of the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. 

• Find out about the 2018 theme and the free resources we provide to help mark Holocaust Memorial Day.

• Understand the practicalities of organising activities, participate in activities and hear tips from Youth Champions who held their own HMD events last year.

• Learn how to become a Youth Champion and discover the five challenges you will be set throughout the year. You’ll complete the second challenge by attending the workshop!
